Richard Lovelace

Author Code: ERLL

Born: Dec. 6, 1617 - (?) Netherlands

Died: (?) 1657 - London, England

Educated at Charterhouse and Oxford, Lovelace had already produced his first work, The Scholar, when he was only 16. He was awarded a master of arts degree. In 1638, he joined the court of Charles I as an honorary servitor to the king. As a loyal royalist, he took part in the Scottish campaigns. He presented Parliament with a pro-episcopal petition at the time of Episcopacy being banned, and was subsequently jailed for seven weeks. Whilst in prison, he produced To Althea, From Prisonwhich contained the now famous lines, Stone Walls Do Not a Prison Make/Nor Iron Bars a Cage. He joined the French in their fight against the Spaniards in 1646 and was wounded at Dunkirk. When he returned to England, he was arrested as a dangerous loyalist, spending the next six months in prison. It was then that he produced Lucasta, published posthumously by his brother in 1659. He died in 1657, but the exact date is not known.
